Hi, I'm an intermediate guitarist who has owned a Spider IV amp for a long time and has been souly living off switching between the preset tones on the left dial (Metal, Insane, Twang etc...). I am not an expert and know next to nothing about amplifiers so if you could help me out here, thank you.

There's 4 channel buttons at the top which are presets for a certain tone, When I change the tone on that channel, it reverts back to the standard built-in tone and forgets my customisations, how do I get it to save the changes?

Sorry if this is extremely vague, the amplifier jargon hasn't sunk in yet. Still learning.

Thanks  :D

When you get the tone the way you want, hold down the channel button that you want to store it in (A, B, C or D) for a few seconds until all 4 channel buttons start flashing and it'll be saved on that channel.

If you have a Spider IV 75 or above, you will also need to select the bank (User banks 1-16) and name the preset.

It's all spelled out in the amp manual.
